McLaren has released a new promotional video that shows former Formula One World Champion Jenson Button driving the P1 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Dubbed "the coolest [McLaren] by far," Button drove the limited edition supercar through the winding course in approximately 53 seconds. While he seemed to be taking it relatively easy, the 916 HP (674 kW) car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than three seconds and hit an electronically-limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Button also got a chance to drive the McLaren M8D Can-Am race car which he described as a "proper beast" that's "so different from what we race these days."
